It Starts with an Idea… volume 2

I love those #throwbackthursday posts you see on social media, reminding us of the many fun memories from times past.  Recently our partners at the Main Street Half Marathon of Hunterdon shared this little gem that brought us back to 2016… and even before that, to 2012 when members of the BaseCamp community (fueled by board member Lindsay Eisenhart) planted a seed that would grow into the Main Street Marathon Series.  Faced with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy which eventually caused the TCS New York City Marathon cancellation, Lindsay led a group of local runners who didn’t feel right running through ravaged parts of NYC and the surrounding boroughs, but weren’t about to let the storm stop them. They ran the 26.2 on local roads!

In 2016 that seed started to sprout as members of BaseCamp Athletic Club and local runners put together a marathon relay. They cultivated what would grow into the course we follow during the #MSHM. Here’s to those pioneers!  #racelocal #community
